Ingredients to Keep Handy:

a) Sealable bag

b) Vinegar

c) Dishwashing liquid

d) Sponge

e) Bathroom cleaner

  1. Step 1: Soak in Vinegar

    Fill sealable bags with vinegar. Ensure that the bag does not overflow and there’s enough room for the showerhead and faucets to soak in the vinegar. Fasten the bags and tie them to the neck of your showerhead and faucets. Leave it for 3-4 hours. However, if your showerheads and faucets have brass or other metallic rings on it, do not leave them in contact with the vinegar for more than 30 minutes. It can damage the metallic finish.

  2. Step 2: Run Hot Water

    Remove the vinegar bags from your showerhead and faucets. Next, run hot water in the shower for a minute. This will help you get rid of any residue mineral deposits.

    Take 3-4 drops of a liquid dishwash on a damp sponge. Scrub the sponge on the showerhead and faucets, gently. Use an old toothbrush to get to the water holes on your showerhead. Ensure that there’s no residue dirt or grime. You can use Cif Bathroom Cleaner that cleans watermarks and soap sediments. Check the pack to understand the correct usage instructions.

    You can also use a lemon to clean your faucets. Cut a lemon into two halves. It’s acidic properties will help break the stain. Open it up using your fingers and press it at the end of the faucet. You can use a sealable bag to secure the lemon tightly and tie the bag with a rubber band. Allow it to stay for 1 hour and then scrub the surface with an old toothbrush. Then wash away with plain water.

  4. Step 4: Run Hot Water Again

    Get rid of the residue dirt or trapped particles by running hot water once again.
